NMN May Provide Protection Against Age-Related Lung Disease
“Our data suggested that NMN could effectively alleviate the replicative and stress-induced senescence of [alveolar epithelial cells],” said Wei and colleagues. By showing that boosting NAD+ levels with NMN prevents age-associated lung cell senescence, the findings suggest that reduced NAD+ levels may play a role in senescence.
Moreover, NMN could ameliorate cell senescence related to diminished NAD+ levels. “It provides a preventive and therapeutic approach for aging-related chronic lung diseases and lung injury caused by external stimuli.” Wei and colleagues go on to say that NMN’s dietary supplementation may be a new, effective means to prevent and reduce age-related lung diseases and stress-induced lung injury in the future.
